I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
I guess you got your answer about the flickr thing. I haven't tested anything, so my guess was that it was a flickr tool...but seems not. Ning does seem to allow you to import all sorts of things, so that's pretty good. Busy this weekend with sick members of family, so wont' get any experimentation done. Sigh...
Great picture of the bird. And of you too! The flickr widget thing you asked about from my profile page was made with this tool: http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/profile.php Looking forward to more pictures from Sydney.
